Perth’s newest cafe officially opened their doors today, and you can’t walk past Tiisch on Milligan Street without a peak inside. What you can expect inside the converted heritage building are typical high ceilings decked with luscious green plants and bright white interior. I made it to the soft opening, excited to taste something fresh for a late brunch.
Walking in, I was blown away by the space that photos would not do justice. Their attention to detail is strongly evident, from the tall cactus that greets you to the sourcing of local ingredients and collaboration with other WA locals for their retail section.
Looking at the menu I wanted to order everything on it, eventually I went for the Cleanse ($19) while my friend went for Wolfgang’s Chicken ($19). Along with that we grabbed a bowl of fries ($7), because why not?
The Cleanse is a light and healthy option, combing their house cured salmon with cucumber carpaccio, micro vegetables they grow by their windowsill and a soft egg. This dish is very well balanced and definitely lets the vegetables shine.
Wolfgang’s Chicken is served with a heirloom tomato salad, fresh herbs, aged balsamic and herbs. I had a small bite of the chicken, which is deliciously tender, flavoursome and totally boneless!
Great brunches must come with great coffee, Tiisch will serve you specialty roasts by Dukes Coffee. But, if you (are crazy and) don’t drink coffee there are drinks using Miko Matcha, iced beverages with Stampede Gelato, teas by Whistleblower and kombucha by Kommunity Brew. So much love for small businesses and collaboration!
I chose the matcha and green apple iced tea ($5.5), which is served in a little Tiisch branded bottle along side some ice with an apple slice. Personally there needed to be more apple flavour in the tea, but this is probably the only flaw I could pick out.
Can’t wait to return tomorrow, I’ve got my eye on the Butterfield Beef Rib and Crispy Seared Barramundi!
